5:36 finally someone with a little common sense on these blogs, you are absolutely right only problem is farmers will always try to screw over one another for the sake of thinking they are bigger and better than their neighbor, if we could only put all that energy into trying to get fair prices everyone would benefit a hell of alot more.
Im amazed at farmers. They will go about their business as usual. Sell some bushels when price looks fair. Complain when prices drop. Battle mother nature. Take slapshots from anti-ag sectors. Grin and bear it when government keeps cutting back payments. It kind of reminds me of the 1800s when we rode the buffalo out of the prairies to extinction. No real rescue plan just breakeven prices for several years and see what happens. Someone else will always farm the land they say. Now we have a large percentage of population saying conventional ag isnt right. Where were these people the last 30 years. Prices are up a bit but its the same boat, same ship, and the same navigator running the ship,, whoever he is. Time for a change. Demand parity prices for your product and take a stand. The system will eventually eat you all up when you look at the numbers. Its just a matter of time. Its real nice seeing gas price higher than a bushel of corn now. Weve been down this road in farming too long lets make people pay a fair and equal price for once for our products.
Weeeee, what a quick and easy soultoin.
